Amazing...Don't just go once!

Not only did we go here once during our week visit, we went here twice! The food is amazing and having the options to buy just what you want and how ever much of that you want is great. The Brisket was my favorite! My husband also loved the spicy sausage.

This was a very new experience for me. I used to live in Grapevine, and this was not something I was expecting in the area. The atmosphere was great and all the staff were friendly and very considerate. The line was ridiculous, but it was really cool to see the the food process. I had the brisket. It was okay,... More

After all the hype from my husband who had previously eaten here I was expecting authentic Texas BBQ! Our group was NOT disappointed!!!! This place screamed good from the moment we walked up and were engulfed in the smokey goodness of pulled pork, bacon wrapped shrimp, all kinds of kabobs, rib eyed steaks...oh my! Yes, the price is up there.... More

WOW! Read reviews prior to going, most were accurate. If you need a BBQ fix this place will suit your needs. There was line when I arrived at 7:15 pm on a Monday night, but it moved fairly quickly. Prices are by the pound. So if you get a lot of meat it's a little spendy. I recommend ordering by... More

I do not care if you are from Memphis, North Carolina, nor Kansas City. Your BBQ will never compare to Texas' BBQ, specially if it comes from Hard Eight BBQ. Expect a line to go inside the Pit BBQ joint, however, expect the best mouth watering BBQ known to humans. Don't waste your time with "Sides." Side dishes are not... More

It's always a pleasure to eat here, this is the meat lover heaven! The brisket was delicious, tasty and tender. Relaxed decor with shared tables, good beers and very good dessert. Don't miss it!

You order your meats directly from the XXL grills before you file inside for sides and condiments. It doesn't get any better than that. Live music on the weekends. Both indoor and outdoor seating.

From mn and az and we don't have bbq like this. Amazing brisket, spicy sausage, turkey, and ambience. The scene add cool with a local band and customer service was fantastic with one of the servers stopping by to tell us jokes.
